What: Why Virginia? The GOP holds slim majorities in both the State Senate (21 -19) and the State House of Delegates (51 - 49.) All of these seats are up for election this November. In the Pioneer Valley we can help Virginia Democrats win majorities in both houses with our letters to potential Democratic voters. A victory will mean that Democrats can address gerrymandering and bring the state’s focus to important climate and immigration issues. Do letter-writing campaigns work? Our partners at the Voter Participation Center have found an increase of 4.3% in registrations and 1.6% in voting. With elections determined by razor-thin margins in key states, your efforts may mean the difference between victory and defeat. RSVP and join us as we help Virginia Democrats take back two houses.
